  1. As a Stutz owner do not use any oil that contains Sulphur as it will eat the bronze wheel Oil used originally was camphor I use Penrite Transoil 140 that is designed for use in non ferrous bronze worm wheels In the past have stripped a number of Timken worm diffs to find wrong oil used with bronze wheel eaten away
  2. HI I note the good machining you have carried out well done. I trust you have used an Aluminum Bronze in all of your yellow metal work, using brass or bronze will not end up with the end result you were looking when placed in use Regards
  3. Sometime ago a Mr HWELLENS posted details on leaf spring settings If available could he post settings for 1920 to 1925 for Stutz cars of that period Thanks
  4. If available could someone post leaf spring technical settings for both front and back leaf spring for 1920 to 1925 for the models of Stutz over that period Thanks Len

    Ignition Coils

    Are there two different design of coils made for a points distributor ? One design of coil for use on a non ballast system? Another designed type of coil for a ballast system only ? Does the ballast resistance matter for a high voltage coil? What is the electrical circuit drawing for a foot operated Starter motor with a twin ignition distributor with two coils using an external mounted ballast for each coils? They feed into the same distributor cap The car is a twin shark plug motor
  8. Hello Thank you for the reply regarding the Detroit gearbox The 1929 Stutz had fitted to the gearbox what they called a Noback The idea was to stop you rolling back on a hill. Not a good design worked a bit like a sprag clutch. Good when new with a bit of wear they jam up I have a 1929 Stutz four speed gearbox but is missing the gear lever and the handbrake lever and parts? Was the identical levers and parts used on the Franklin? Any chance of a photo of the Franklin box? Regards Len
  9. Ken I HAD SOME MADE BY A SPRING MAKER HAVE A LOOK A SOME OF THE KNOWN SPRING MAKERS IN THE USA AS THEY OFFER U BOLTS regards LEN
  10. Did Franklin use a Detroit 4 speed gearbox as used on the 1929 Stutz? Also did franklin use a gemmer series 215 steering box? Any picture of a detroit box if used Thanks Len
  11. Did the 1927-30 Dodge truck (or Graham) use a borg and beck model 11Q clutch? Did it use a 3 inch outside dia carbon thrust bearing or has there been available a replace ball type that fits into the original bearing holder? I am after a Thrust bearing that fits into a holder type as opposed to a latter bearing that fits onto a shaft believe the 1929 Dodge DB senior used an 11Q Borg and Beck as well Regards Len
  12. Did the 1926 4-44 Auburn use a 3" odia by 2" idia by 5/8" thick carbon clutch release bearing ? If so are these available or is there a replacement ball bearing type available that fits into the same holder ?
  13. What is the clutch thrust bearing number used on a 1928 Stutz Where are replacements available from? Len
